One of the challenges that the precision agriculture industry faces is staying ahead of the rapid advancement of technology. It is important to remember the basic principle of precision farming: reduce input cost while maximizing profits through technology.
Farmers and contractors expect that their machinery, precision farming technologies, and farm management systems are all compatible and work seamlessly.
The ambition of the Swiss Future Farm is to become a local and global knowledge center for practical use of digital farming, including a showcase for AGCO's precision agriculture such as Fuse Technologies and Fuse Connected Services.
As the AgTech sector booms, so too does the hype and interest around ag data. We need to treat data as the valuable currency that it is – in our conversations, our operations, and perhaps above all, in our legal agreements.
